Surprise in the Tea Pot
I opened my email the other day, only to find this delightful encouragement from A Simple Country Girl: the photo above and this sweet message...
Two days after I read your tea pilgrimage post, I was taking some photos early one morning while the light danced on the kitchen table. I was snapping pictures of a basil in a green creamer. Then I added the tea pot and honey jar, sans the basil. Look what I saw! A wonderful cross reflected on the teapot. I couldn't see it with any of the other stoneware, just the tea pot. Immediately I thought of you. So, here you go miss L.L., something for your new yearlong journey.
Thank you, Simple Country Girl. Indeed, I felt inspired, so my girls and I placed our first splurge order tonight... a green Earl Grey, a passionfruit mango red, and a lychee blossom green. We were oohing and aahing and we can't wait to taste the new teas and write about our experience.
